This simple app will use math to craete the illusion that this program is reading your mind. Just follow the on-screen instructions and the click on the Crystal Ball. This is a great thing to send to your friends and family. It will amaze them! It also works every time. All you have to do is pick and 2 digit number, add the digits together and subtract that from the original number that you picked. (example: if you picked 50, do 5+0=5 then do 50-5=45)
then find the symbol that corresponds to the number you ended up with and click the crystal ball and it will read your mind. (Note: Hold the mouse up to your head for a stronger signal...... just kidding!)

Solution to Andy Naughton's magic trick
February 3, 2006 -- This is the solution to Andy Naughton's trick at http://trunks.secondfoundation.org/files/psychic.swf. Congratulations for a well conceived one! (And thanks to Terri for bringing my attention to it.)
I saw the solution in http://www.pierrelemieux.org/newsnaughton30206.html
You choose a number AB (where A is the first digit and B the second digit). The result of your calculation will be:
(10A +B) - (A + B) = 9A.
This means that, whatever B you choose, your answer can only be one of the following 9 numbers (given A between 1 and 9): 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81. If you check the table of numbers and symbols on the magic page, you can observe that the symbols change at each round in order to confuse you, but in any given round, the symbol is always the same for these 9 numbers. Your calculation necessarily gives a result associated with the unique symbol assigned to the 9 possible solutions.
